|Description ||The wellhouse sits within a small stone wall enclosure. There are Latin mottoes carved into the edge of the roof and a latticed wooden door. On the front of the wellhouse to the left of the door is a fish that perhaps relates to the legend at St Neotís other well behind the church in the Cornish village which bears his name (see St Neot's Well (St Neot)). To the right of the door is a Chi Rho symbol, one of the earliest cruciform symbols used by Christians. I have been told that the true dedication of this well should be to St Winwaloe Ö. like the nearby church.|
